the country in new jersey where voters head to the polls, governor chris christie will win reelection. the latest quinnipiac poll has him up over two to one over barba barbara buono. christie and his supporters hope to show the republican party how to win an election. we caught up with governor cristy on the campaign trail over the weekend and asked him what will likely be his victory speech on tuesday. >> sounds like you're planning for a message beyond new jersey. is that a fair assessment? >> i'm not planning for it. i think it's inevitable. people look at elections and they try to discern about what they mean at that moment and what they mean for the future. i think that what people will see is so unusual for what our party has created in the last couple of years that invariably people will draw from us. >> is the margin necessary to lay a future for your career? >> i don't think so. barack obama won the state by 17 points a year ago. the fact that you're talking to a republican about margin rather than can you win or. >> really good thing to have. >> at this stage you look at chr
that the game change authors obtained a memo from governor chris christie's vetting process to be vice president. quote, according to a memo on christie from the vetting team, it had unanswered questions from early in his political career on a securities and exchange commission settlement involving mr. christie's brother. on names and documentation of his household help, and on his medical sister. the dossier was littered with potential land mines. we haven't seen the book yet, but this raises a question. meanwhile mitt romney had another issue with the governor. that would be chris christie's weight. romney marvelled at christie's girth, his difficulties in making his way down the narrow aisle of the campaign bus. watching a video of christie without his suit jacket on romney cackled to his aides, guys, look at that. that sounds pretty high school. chris christie, if i were him and i liked the guy, i would be ticked of something putting off questions about the vetting not getting answers. >> it was clear during the campaign and after that the convention that the relationship between christie's
administration. meantime, in new jersey, chris christie is seeking to take a page from george w. bush's playbook and emerge as an even stronger 2016 presidential candidate. governor christie aiming for the widest republican margin of victory since tom keen won 69% of the vote back in 1985. and another long-term trend could be broken tomorrow. since virginia and new jersey vote together, it would be the first time, that the two states have elected governors from different parties since 1985. a lot of history there. joining me now, nbc news senior political editor mark murray and also senior washington correspondent for politico. i'll start with you mark. let's first talk about virginia. as i said, a 30-year trend seems to be on its way to being broken. >> well, right, of course the marquis contest is the gubernatorial race where terry mccalliffe is in the driver's seat. may be the closest contest will be the state attorney general's race between mark herring and mark o ben shane, the polling we've seen on attorney generals race is a little tougher. the polling we've seen it is very close. democra
-- >> i'm now a single issue voter. christie is off of my list. >> in the end he did more harm. >> he was like a general. >> ann colter. >> we're going to bring in chris christie. >> romney will be the nominee. >> the argument that senator wendy davis made in her filibuster in the texas state senate against a restrictive abortion bill carried the day in court when provisions of that law were found unconstitutional. one third of clinics were set to close their doors when the law would have gone into effect. one provision required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges of a hospital within 30 miles of that abortion facility. federal district judge wrote the admitting privileges provision of house bill 2 does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman's health and in any event places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a non-viable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her. the judge struck down some of the law's restriks on the use of pills used to induce appor
a sharper look at how the 2016 race could shape up. it's clear that hillary clinton and chris christie are the prohibitive favorites. the new jersey governor hoping to use a big victory tomorrow to show republicans he is the most electable. mitt romney hinted christie could be the party's savior in 2016. hillary clinton is calculating her own appearances with her first foray back into the campaign spotlight, stumping for close friend terry mcauliffe. but that new book, "double down" is spilling big-time campaign secrets from the 2012 election. two bombshells include dirt on chris christie's background that came up during the vice presidential vet and tpossibiliy they would swap joe biden for hillary clinton. two veteran campaign reporters say president obama saying i just don't know if i can do this, as he prepared for the second debate. let me bring in our company, editor in chief of reason magazine, matt welch and the "washington post" politics reporter, jackie kucinich. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with chris christie because he's got an election he's almost sure to

considered chris christie to be your running mate and ultimately you rejected him, and some reporting in the book indicates that there was some concerns about his background and your own investigations and your own vetting process. here's what they report in the book. the dossier on the garden state governor's background was littered with potential landmines. there was no point in thinking about christie further. with the clock running out, romney pulled the plug on it for good. questions about his lawsuits, his health, indeed his weight. did you look at those issues as disqualifying, and if so, why? >> i know the vetting people who went through that analysis and put together the report laid everything out. frankly, there wasn't anything they found that wasn't already part of the public record and hadn't been dealt with effectively by chris christie. there was nothing new there. the reason i chose paul ryan was, as i indicated before, which paul had a complement of skills and experience that i thought would be helpful if he actually became vice president. i had been a governor. i hadn

. puffer fish for chris christie. as you point out the romney campaign had serious concerns with chris christie's background. one of the reasons they didn't pick him. were you surprised christie has gotten such a big part of the buzz surrounding this book particularly as he heads to the polls tomorrow or folks head to the polls to potentially vote for him? >> look, he's a big exciting figure in american politics. there aren't many people like him. he's on his way tomorrow to be re-elected by a resounding margin. the fact there's focus isn't a surprise to either of us. what we found reporting the story, mitt romney's consideration of governor christie. what we found surprising was first of all he considered him and then rejected him because he thought there were too many aspects of his past which had been looked out a little in new jersey, in context of the politics there. governor romney said, look, in the national race everything is different. it will get a lot of scrutiny. he didn't want the distraction sarah palin caused when she was selected by john mccain. he rejected governor chr

jersey governor chris christie said because the government was so slow to act, that he's not entirely satisfied with how his recovery is going for new jersey. take a listen. >> it took 92 days for the federal government to act on aid to sandy victims. that compares to ten days for hurricane katrina and 17 days for hurricane gustav. i told people it was going to add things to the back ending. here's what it caused. no federal money started to flow here until the end of may. >> sir, do you support what chris christie is saying here, that this response was too slow and congress bears some of the blame for that pace? >> absolutely. congress bears a large amount of the blame. it was absolutely disgraceful that we had to wait over three months to get the aid every other region in the country got within ten days or two weeks. this was wrong. it compounded the problems we had and we had to go through the entire winter with virtually for federal aid coming in. adds governor christie said, it was nearly may by the time the process was completed. then there was so much devastation, so much damag
of chris christie could affect the hillary clinton campaign? >> the 2000 campaign was a very effective one. i was an intern on that campaign and did a heck of a job fetching coffee and answering phones. but in all seriousness, it's a great comparison from that race to this one. she didn't go in there thinking she was a given to win the senate seat. she went in as a total novice, introduced herself to voters, got her hands dirty. something that she was accused of not doing in 2008. the reason it's really important for the clinton campaign to take that approach this time around is because you look at shaquille o'neal who hardly ever weighs into politics but he did endorsing chris christie, a republican. an overwhelming majority of black voters supported barack obama. but in my 2008 "party crashing," plugging that, 35% of black voters ages 18 to 24 actually identify as independent, thomas. so while they are obama loyalists, many of them, they're not necessarily kem contract party loyalists and president obama slipped in the double digits between 2008 and 2012 among black men in part because o

romney, who is going to be on "meet the press" had code names for his vp candidates. chris christie was puffer fish. tim paw lenty lake fish, rob portman was fillet of fish. we have senator marco rubio as piscado. mitt romney scratched chris christie off the list for a variety of reasons including his medical history. he kak elled verbally to his aides while watching a christie video. how much emphasis do you think the book can put on those claims about christie's vetting and wherewithal being a serious contender to be the running mate? >> well, i think you have to understand what these books are. after every presidential campaign, and i worked on a presidential campaign, there's a lot of score settling. people's egos' bruised, their feelings are hurt, and mark halperin and his co-author have figured out a way to exploit this for fun and profit and win another bok ok to follow up to "game change." i think at the end of the campaign we saw chris christie saying nice things about barack obama an his response to hurricane sandy. clearly some people are upset about that. now you've got
it on governor christie and governor cuomo. unfortunately there's so much they can't do at this point until they find out how the process works best for them. andrea. >> katy, the politicians were all out in force today. you've got mike bloomberg going around on staten island, governor christie has 10 stops today. governor cuomo, laguardia, the subway station. are they going to take the heat or are they getting points for being engaged? >> it's a mixed bag. some people are saying the governors did a great job. in new york and some areas, new york city especially was able to roll out a lot of help from its own coffers and get people on their feet while it waited for a repayment. that didn't happen in new jersey. you have a lot of people angry especially in staten island where people want to rebuild and they can't seem to get the money to do so. so it depends on who you're speaking to. a lot of people say christie's fault, bloomberg, cuomo's fault. you find others who the process works for. it depends on who you talk to. the recovery is uneven pref katy tur, thank you. you've been there since
christie. today we learned from excerpts of the forthcoming 2012 sequel to game change that mitt romney's nickname for christie was puffer fish. and however -- here's why team romney decided against using christie -- tapping christie as vp. quote, the dossier on the garden state governor's background was littered with potential land mines. how electable is the supposedly electable, chris christie? >> i think there is a lot there for journalists to be pawing over in the years to come. and it does -- he seems to be walking to re-election. this may make democrats wish they had dug a little deeper and given barbara buono help in her race. democrats have helped declare him the electable one too. so, you know, there's lots to talk about when it comes to chris christie. and it's very early. >> well, we'll have plenty of time, joan. >> yes, we will. >> joan walsh from salon. thank you very much. >> thanks, jonathan. >> coming up, the end of the end of debate, finally, after all these years. we'll actual you why we have our fingers crossed. ♪ >> so what you want me to do. ♪ express yourself
chris christie is hoping for a second term. barbara would ypaints him as so who wants to be president, not governor. and now to the latest on obama care and the fight to fix it. if you tried logging on this morning, you probably noticed it was off line. operators temp operators temporarily shut down the sight to make updates. >> perhaps the most important lesson the president failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. and when he told the american people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again, he wasn't telling the truth. >> but governor, on that point -- >> i think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term. >> romney also responded to the reports can dumped governor christie for health reasons. he said the governor provided health will records and there were no concerns. >>> time for the latest in sports from my good trend richard lui. good monday morning. >> good monday morning to you. we'll start with some sunday night football. as you m
in the excerpts we've gotten was the chris christie camp and mitt romney camp do not like each other. the campaign concluding that romney's camp were a gaggle of clowns that couldn't complete a circ circus. and i think the conclusion rather than necessarily the substance of those things is they really didn't like each other. and all the stuff in the conservative media particularly toward the end of the campaign of chris christie cost mitt romney an election, that went deeper than bloggers. the people in the romney camp. >> no, totally, you talk to a romney adviser still off the record they will 100% cite chris christie as one of the main reasons they lost 2012. and that totally comes through this book, at least the excerpts i've seen. the other thing you have to remember is we see a lot about the clinton, you know, clinton coming on possibly replacing biden. all of that is also being colored by how these democrats are positioning themselves for 2016. >> explain that more. that's an important point. that's true because there are a lot of machinations happening in the world of democratic politics th

, chris christie, kasic or martinez, you can name a few that are in states that president obama won, but they have high approval ratings and they know what it means to work with democrats to compromise and the most recent obviously shaquille o'neal endorsement of chris christie. this is where the party should be looking to move forward. >> chris christie has been talking about bipartisanship a lot and doesn't want to be caught in the type of conflict in washington over and over again. if he wants to run for president is another matter because obviously there's a reason why everyone in washington is at each other's throats, it's politically beneficial. >> you write about a deeper point in your column, with the middle class nur dur res and inequality rising, they offer tax cuts for the wealthy and reduced subsidies, does the republican philosophy sort of fundamentally not match the problems of our time? >> i'm not sure if the philosophy, it's seems to be the practice more. you have two wings of the republican party. one wing wants to going ba to the 1980s and ronald reagan and the oth
